This yummy Spanish white from the Rueda region is a blend of Verdejo and Viura. Crisp and light as a Sauvignon Blanc, but with less acidity and more mouthwatering pear, apple and ginger spice flavors.
Credit modern technology for resurrecting this wine region. Cool fermentations and nighttime harvests have promoted freshness in wines made from Spainrsquo;s indigenous Verdejo grape. This is an exuberant wine with lovely balance, offering lemon curd, honey and passion fruit flavors, rich texture and crisp acidity.
Sauvignon Blanc fans take note: this no-oak Verdejo tastes a lot like S.B., with ultrafresh tropical and citrus fruit characteristics that include aromas and flavors of pineapple, grapefruit, passion fruit and nectarine. Extremely lively and appealing, with a good mix of acidity and body. A very good food wine.
Bracing aromas of lemon, grapefruit pith, white pepper, mint and tarragon; conveys an impression of dusty minerality. Then fairly rich and spicy, with citrus and licorice flavors. This has real presence and density for a white wine in this price range. Finishes with a slightly sauvignon-like bitterness that should work with fresh shellfish. Should develop nicely in bottle for a couple of years.
Rich yet firm, this generous white shows melon, lime and mineral notes that are balanced and fresh. The lingering finish brings you back for another sip. Drink now through 2005.
Mineral, saline, blanched almond and white-fruit aromas announce that this wine is still fresh. Flavors of white peach,. apricot, pineapple and green apple are pleasant, while the mildly pithy finish is short but cleansing.
Pure and forward, with minerally aromas of citrus, grapefruit and wet stone. For basic Verdejo, this is head and shoulders above most; it bursts with fresh orange, grapefruit, green apple and peach, and the finish is pure and long. So tasty and super easy to like; a highly recommended go-to value white.
